Respond to Review of Fire and Spice Vegan Restaurant
by VeggGirl

Review: Agreed Chris is the man. To Chris - Are you there? What happened??!! I was the biggest Fire & Spice fan......amazing food, great people!! But my last 3 visits were so utterly disappointing I don't think I will be going back. The food has declined considerably. Is someone else cooking? Have you made changes? DON'T! What was incredibly delicious food has been replaced with bland, sometimes overcooked, over salted mediocre food. This is not what we want people to experience when they try vegan food! My last few visits: the chole was tasteless, the greens were mushy, salty and blah (oh how I miss the perfectly cooked bright green kale seasoned to perfection), the lentils were awful (F&S french lentils used to be a fav), and the curry potatoes that I was told were spicy were not spicy at all and barely even seasoned......even the quinoa was so-so. I sure hope things return back to normal. If this is a new change you're trying out - UNDO asap. I will have to ask around to see if things improve. Just can't see myself spending money on the current standards.

Hello, on Friday, June 18th, a friend and I had a great dinner at Fire and Spice. We both ordered a large plate, and let the nice woman choose what we would eat. My plate featured quinoa, kale, spicy potatoes, scrambled tofu, ital stew, rice and beans, bbq tempeh, and tofu, and spiced chickpeas. Everything was delicious!!! quinoa was cooked perfectly, the kale was wondeful, spicy potatoes had just the right amount of heat, scramble tofu was just right, ital stew was on point, an the tempeh and tofu had nice strong flavor. the chickpeas had less of a strong flavor than usual but were still good. I also had a carrot juice and my friend had the sea moss beverage and they were both made on the spot with love by Christopher. I found our experience to be very charming.

If you are in a rush, i recommend calling ahead. it has never taken very long for me to eat here, but if you don't have time to relax and dine in, it might be a good idea to call in so that you can be in and out.

I know there were other menu options available but i'm not sure what, and there were other people dining there who seemed very pleased.

Also, if you have time come in for a relaxing meal. the place is nice to sit in, there is good reggae music playing and it offers a nice atmosphere! I don't go into this restaurant planning to look at the menu and pick something, i like to just go in and say, "what's cooking today?" and whatever it is, eat it, like the menu is the special of the day.

just wanted to let others know that i had an enjoyable experience there today, and i'm looking forward to going back in again soon.
